multimedia/dvdrip is a frontend for transcode that can save you from dealing 
with transcode's incredibly fuzzed up CLI for most standard ripping + 
encoding jobs. However, you will need to take care that you compile transcode 
with the right switches, the defaults yield a mostly crippled transcode. My 
personal recommendations for optimal usage with dvdrip are:

WITH_XVID= YES			# Allows to encode with the xvid codec
WITH_FFMPEG= YES		# Allows to encode to ffmpeg codecs such as mpeg4
WITH_LIBA52= YES		# You NEED this, since without it transcode cannot decode
				# AC3 audio tracks.
WITH_OGG= YES			# Enables you to create ogg-media streams instead of AVIs
WITH_SUBRIP= YES		# Enables the subtitleripper-portion of transcode.
